Description
Our global workforce is changing quickly. Businesses today are hiring freelancers in record numbers – including in the U.S. where many large companies report that 30% of their procurement is now going to fractional workers. In fact, there are already 42 million Americans today who are either self-employed or part-time. With an eye on the future, it’s estimated that within 5 years 54% of all workers will be completing their jobs online.

HR teams who choose to ignore this inevitable shift in the landscape – relying solely on traditional forms of job placement – are destined to fall behind. But for savvy HR professionals quick to accept the transformation and adapt to a new world of career offerings, the rewards will be many. By tapping into the ever-growing market for global online freelancers you’ll ensure you and your company’s success for years to come.

In this lively and informative session you’ll learn what’s behind this game-changing move to online freelancing. Discover how shifting lifestyles, new attitudes towards work and fluctuating cultural values have paved the road for an exodus from the corporate cubicle. You’ll come to understand how technology advancements and other innovations are making this transition possible, and what skills and tool you’ll need to keep pace in tomorrow’s HR world.

And most importantly, you’ll learn what the most-demanded skills are today, and what skills businesses will be looking for tomorrow. Also explore where the most-coveted online freelancers are located, and what resources are available to you to help ensure that you’re always able to deliver the right talent at the right time.
